Five for Friday!~5/9/14~

Woohoo! Happy Friday, Folks! I hope you have had a wonderful week! I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to share my Five for Friday with you! 

Let's get Friday rollin'...

Check out my EARLY Birthday present from my parents (they are awesome!)  I have officially joined the Mac world! I am currently typing this post on my Mac, mind blown! 

It is taking me a little while to figure out how to add image just to this post, but I'm getting there.  Do you use a Mac? If so, do you have any tips, pointers on creating products, or awesome tutorials?! Share away! I am so excited to learn everything I can and use my lil' lap top to it's full potential. 

WOOHOO! YAY for upgrading! 

I have been waiting and waiting for my lovely little wedding shoes to arrive.  I checked my mailbox EVERYDAY in hopes that a box would be there patiently waiting for me. Finally, last Thursday they came!! 

Check these puppies out! 

I am in LOVE with these shoes! They make me taller without making it difficult to walk and they are comfortable. WHAT?! Who has ever heard of "comfortable" heels?!  Now, I can happily vacuum my apartment in true 50's housewife style.  (I promise I'm not rolling my ankle in this picture.)

This week I took the jump and purchased my very first Erin Condren planner.  I have heard so many wonderful things about these planners, I just couldn't resist the temptation any longer!  I hope it helps me reduce the amount of planners, calendars and grade books I take home every night.  I've heard it helps A TON with organization, and since I'm only in my 3rd year of teaching, I haven't quite found my niche for I'll give it a shot! 

I love the saying on the front of this planner.  This is a common theme in my classroom, so it will work perfectly.  Now...if it would only get here soon, that would make my day!! 

Wanna check them out for yourself?! Click on me (the clip art me over there-----------> ) and see the loveliness for yourself!

This week has been filled with lots of testing and schedule changes for my kiddos.  Computers have crashed, systems have been down and test's had been frozen. Gotta love technology!  With all of this going my firsties did a great job of going with the flow of everything. 

After a long day this week, I found this sweet little note on my desk at the end of the day. 

This sweetie wrote one of the best "powims" I have ever received! Needless to say, this turned my day around in a snap! 

This is why I LOVE my job! 

Last but not least, let's talk about my giveaway!  For the past few weeks I have been running a giveaway for my latest product on TPT. 

This lovely little unit contains everything you need to end the year in a fun, yet simple, way.  It contains memory book covers for years to come, writing prompt pages for different grade levels, gift tags for your kiddos (beach balls, sunglasses, gum, glow sticks), and an exhilarating scavenger hunt through your school to a secret treasure ( treasure is not included ..haha).  I created this unit with busy teacher's in mind and held a giveaway to give all of you the chance to win your very own copy! 

Well, the giveaway is over and we have our winner!


...and the winner is...

Congratulations, Larua! Be sure to check your email for your prize! Thank you to all of you that participated in this giveaway! If you still would like your own copy hop on over to my store right now! 

Well folks, I hope you have an amazing weekend! Summer is getting closer with each and every day, so take a deep breath and enjoy! I'll be spending my weekend converting files over to my new lap top and hanging with this furry face! 

Thanks for stoppin' by!
